Location: The Suloia Group prospect is at an elevation of about 150 feet, about 1.1 miles east-southeast of the outlet of Suloia Lake. The prospect is 0.5 mile northeast of the center of sec. 6, T. 52 S., R. 61 E. It is MAS no. 0021140139 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location is accurate within 0.5 mile.
Geology: Johnson and Karl (1985) map the rocks in the vicinity of this prospect as a stock of Jurassic tonalite. The rocks are cut by steeply-dipping, northwest-striking faults; they include the regional-scale Border Ranges Fault, which truncates the stock about a mile southwest of the prospect. The only published information about the prospect is that it has been staked for lode gold, silver, copper, and lead (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
